Welcome to the forum.

The most trouble you will have with the Camel is finding accurate documentation of the real thing.

Ken - I'm very lucky that I live in Columbus, Ohio and the United States Airforce Museum is about 75 miles away and they have a Camel.  I've been there once to get the first round of reference photos and I'm sure i'll be back many more times.

Wow is that an old Kennedy box ? I have one my Dad left me.

I think you're probably the only LSPer with their own CNC.

I can't even comment on your capacity to turn out fine models

without repeating others.  :shrug:

 

 

 

No CNC Mike.   I do all of my machining by hand.  Given the fact that I still have a VCR that's flashing 12:00 I figured that trying to figure out CNC would just make my brain explode.  I stick to old skool.

That first car looks like a Delage?  Is that what you built?

The first large-scale model I ever built was a 1932 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Coupe.  I named her The Satin Doll.  She's done in 1:8 scale; hard to believe I completed her over 13 years ago.  This one took 14 months.rr02
